comment If ICANN only charges 18¢ per domain name, why am I paying $10?
@ShitalShah, So basically you are saying that if NSI had accepted the 5.9 M, then right now domain names wouldn't cost more than a $1?

Do you mean that only animated images can have more than 256 colors? Is it possible to hack it in anyway that we can display a static image with more than 256 colors?

@bybe, When RFC says "should not", it means that it's not mandatory right?

comment How to protect PDF file from indexing?
that's not what I'm saying.. I meant we should not block pdf files using robots.txt. Robots meta tags and X-Robots-Tag HTTP headers are discovered when a URL is crawled. If you block a page through robots.txt, then the spider would not have a chance to see the X-Robots-Tag. If the spider do not see the X-Robots-Tag, it will list the url in search results as long as there are external links to that URL. In other words, all files blocked by robots.txt are list-able in search results. See webmasters.stackexchange.com/a/49124/7654
